Screeeeeeech!

There needs to be an intervention, screeeeeching brakes are not cool, nor are they safe!!  Why don’t people here take care of their vehicles?

Symptoms of bad car brakes:

You car makes a sqeeling noise every time you stop your vehicle.

People around you cringe when you approach.

It takes you longer than normal to stop, so you keep pressing harder and harder on your brakes, making a louder and louder squeeling noise!

This is serious.  Let me be the first to tell you, YOU NEED NEW BRAKES!

If I had the means, I would personally buy brake fluid and break pads for all of the vehicles and motor vehicles that make so much damnnnnnned noise!  Am I the only one who cringes when a screeeecching car pulls up next to them?  As if the honking isn’t bad enough…

It wasn’t until I came here that I believed in noise pollllution.  But really, if your brakes make noise, fix the problem.  It is in everyone’s best interest to do so!

According to a car repair website called repair pal,

“Noise heard while braking is an indication of brake wear and the brakes should be inspected. Brakes are very much a safety item, and delaying repair is not a safe strategy. In fact, delaying repair can potentially lead to more expensive repairs because worn brake pads can wear down to the metal backing. When the squealing turns into a grinding, the brake rotors are likely being damaged (often requiring replacement).  Continually driving a vehicle until the friction lining of the brake pads is worn away will lead to expensive damage—your brakes might even fail. Anytime the brakes make an abnormal noise, they should be inspected and repaired before the braking system becomes compromised in any way.”
